Coupon Christine: FREE eye glasses for kids!!

Savings Tip of the Week

Have you been shopping in a store and saw the most perfect toy for your child or the best picture frame for the front hall but the box the toy is in is completely demolished or there is a chip in the corner of the frame near the top?  Have you ever thought about approaching customer service to ask for further discounts on these items? A LOT of stores will knock 25-75% off the price of the item, sweet savings! Your kid is only going to rip through the box anyway and the frame is going to be up high anyway, you can just colour the corner of it with a dark magic marker. A lot of stores will be happy you took something that will have a difficult time selling off their shelves anyway – happy customer and happy store J
